The Journey Starts Now: Q&A Sessions With Women in STEM and What You Can Do Starting in High School -Hosted by WEST

January 11 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

The Journey Starts Now: Q&A Sessions With Women in STEM and What You Can Do Starting in High School

Join us to hear from women in STEM who are excelling in their careers. From being directors to being professors in bioengineering, these women have done incredible things for science, but they were all young high schoolers at one point in their life. What did they do to get from there to where they are now? That’s what they will be talking about in the Q&A-style panel. These women are resilient, bold, courageous, and accomplished. Hearing from them will be a truly informative and exciting experience and who knows – maybe one day you will be in their position, serving as a mentor to high schoolers and being an inspiration to the next generation. The panel discussion will be moderated by Suhanee Mitragotri, Harvard College, Class of 2025.

Panelists include:

  • Dr. Cristina Almansa, Senior Director, Head of Translational Medicine Clinical Science. Immunology Research & Development, The Janssen Pharmaceuticals Companies of Johnson & Johnson

  • Dr. Ambika Bajpayee, Associate Professor of Bioengineering, Northeastern University
  • Dr. Lesley Chan, Director of Cellular Process Development, bluebird bio
